Dott, John

October 5, 1958- November 11, 2021

Our John was taken from us way too soon, after 13 months of fighting so hard to survive cancer. John was a husband of almost 30 years to Julie Dott, a father to Blake and Mitchell Dott, a son to Thomas and Mary Dott- both deceased, a brother to James Dott and Brian Dott- deceased, a brother-in-law to Janice Dott, Edward and Helen Beckley, a son-in-law to Joy Beckley, an uncle to Clayton Dott, Bart and Spencer Beckley, and a cherished friend to so many others.

John was born in Scotland. At 9yo his family immigrated to Canada. He went through the Catholic school system in Vancouver. After living in Burnaby for years, he settled in Coquitlam. He lived in Coquitlam for 23 years.

In Johns 63 years, he travelled to many countries. He especially loved his boat cruises! He loved his family and being in his home. He loved his best friends Gord and Paul. He loved going to work at ICBC, and the camaraderie he had with his fellow workers. He loved the years he coached baseball, and going to see his sons sport games. He loved his golf, red wine, cigars, his teams (Sea Hawks and Canucks), and he loved life in general.

Everyone loved John for his sunny positive demeanor, and his kindness, easiness and honesty. He was truly one of the good ones. Raise your glass to a life beautifully lived, and a heart deeply loved! Our lives will never be the same without you.

I’ve been sitting looking back in my memory of my years knowing John. First met John at CEF (ICBC) where I was his supervisor and later his manager. In our early years we used to golf on our four days off with Paul always at Swaneset. What I remember most about John was that he was such as easy going guy. I think about our working relationship and I can’t think of a single time when we ever had issues. He was always so helpful to me, never complaining about anything that was asked of him. A valuable asset to our team in the office and a good work friend to everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. John was excellent as his job and was a hard working employee.
R.I.P John. You were such a good guy and I’m sure will be missed by so many !

Please accept my condolences for your loss. I worked with John at CEF, and he was so warm, caring and funny. He was a joy to know and work with. We had so many laughs together! And I'll miss the hint of cigar smoke after his golf cart runs out in the yard. He made working there so much better with his laid back humour. He will be greatly missed.
